On 13 November 2019, Mandeni Local Municipality joined forces with SASSA and assisted 113 families with groceries during an ICrop programme held at Mhlubulweni Sports Field, ward 2.

His worship the Mayor, Cllr. Thabani Mdlalose delivered a keynote address at this event and lauded SASSA for lending a helping hand in alleviating poverty. Mdlalose also cited that there’s an outcry over poverty from all corners of the country and the fight against hunger will continue until no one goes to bed hungry.

“It is great to see that they are departments who still go back to the people they swore to serve and ensure they are taken care of. We understand that this will not end hunger completely. However, it is to show that we know and understand the hardships you are going through, therefore we will always try to assist where we can” said Mdlalose while addressing the beneficiaries.

As part of the day’s proceedings, various sector departments presented on the programmes they offer to the public and urged those who qualify for them to come forth and register.

The Mayor also called for cohesion between Departments and advised community members to take advantage of what is on offer.

“It is exciting to see that we have a full house, this says most of you will get to hear about the programmes that are being presented. Please do take advantage of these opportunities, they are set up to assist you” concluded the Mdlalose.

Mandeni Local Municipality Deputy Mayor, Cllr, Phindile Sishi and Council Speaker, Cllr. Bhekithemba Magwaza were among the leaders present at this important event.
